WHEN: THURSDAY, OCTOBER 8th, 2009 6:00 PM
WHERE: Amoeba Music, 6400 Sunset Boulevard, Hollywood, CA http://www.amoeba.com/

DETAILS: In 1977, the Police stormed the music scene to dominate the top of the charts and the radio airwaves worldwide with five #1 albums and a succession of top 10 hit singles. In 2007, the band reunited for the third highest grossing tour of all-time selling over 3 million tickets in 151 shows. But if you think that is the end of Stewart Copeland's story, you couldn't be more wrong. His experiences take him from raising seven children in Los Angeles to the polo grounds in England to Africa for a film shoot with Pygmies and to his studio where he scores films and pens operas. Copeland's voice is an original. His humor, sharp observations and rich use of language shows how the tall American became the third member of one of the most influential bands, and he even recounts the reunion tour and the famed dynamics between him and his bandmates. With this book you are more than a reader, you are a member of Copeland's crew and ride shotgun with the mercurial and brilliant drummer. A must for memoir buffs and Police fans alike.
This is your one chance in Los Angeles to have Stewart Copeland personally sign a copy of STRANGE THINGS HAPPEN.
